Any fixes for this? I can't play this game or any other game using pb without pb....I run Windows 7 64bith btw.

Thanks!
I am afraid we will need the complete quote of the error message. (Try googling it, maybe something usable comes up.)
Have you set your personal firewall to allow PB?
Maybe the pb installer is corrupted, redownload it?

Here's the quote
Checking user is Administrator OK
Checking Administrator privileges OK
Opening Service Control Manager OK
Searching for PnkBstrA None Found - OK
Extracting PnkBstrA service OK
Verifying service authenticity ERROR

ERROR: The extractor file has failed an authenticity check

I have tried multiple downloads of pbsvc.exe. I even tried the one on the disk from CoD:WaW and that has the same issue. I googled it a lot and spent like six hours on it last night (I haven't played PR in a while and I really wanted to play...). I'm usually good at fixing little problems but this one is beyond me. I don't have a firewall and disabling the windows default one didn't help at all.

Problem: I bought a new game today too. Dawn of War 2, and it couldn't install properly either. Fails the first step with a generic installation failed message. I wonder if something is completely wrong with my computer.

Help please. This is scaring me. Thanks in advance.

My log file is full of the typical
[01.24.2010 22:42:16] PnkBstrB v2.212 (BF2) Service Started Successfully. This service is a component of the PunkBuster Anti-Cheat system. Visit PunkBuster Online Countermeasures for more information.

But then it also includes
[01.24.2010 23:54:51] WARNING: CRITICAL ERROR: Failed to Register Service (ffa9)
[01.24.2010 23:54:52] WARNING: CRITICAL ERROR: Failed to Register Service (ffa9)
The heck?

Well i get kicked after 10 min in every game. It gives me a dbghelp.dll error and kicks me for 2 min. I tried to replace this dbg file with a different version but windows wont let me edit/delete/or move the file even though i am the administrator on my pc. I am not able to play pr now due to this problem. I did everything this thread said and it still doesn't work. I even re-installed PR. Any ideas? thanks

Ok, for some stupid reason I got to reinstall my whole PC. I run Vista, and until 3 days ago I ran BF2 and PR 0.91 perfectly online. After I reinstalled my system, I reinstalled bf2 and pr, upgraded PB, and nothing. I get " The connection to the server has been lost" after i try to connect to any server. Sometimes, i connect to a server, but it will kick me after 2 min for "losing key packets". I have not changed anything hardware in the last 6 months(router/modem/pc).

hi all,
unfortunately I have a problem with punkbuster:
"Pnkbstrb.exe heartbeats stopped"

I already read all the previous pages and I already tried all possible solutions with negative results.

So excluding previous solutions, what remains to be done to solve this problem?

Thanks to all

Unhappy Punkbuster B reset issues

I have been having issues with PB B .exe since the introduction of version 9 of PR.
Punkbuster B is failing to initiate and I cannot join servers. The maps load (albeit slowly), client data verified and then the connection is lost. Setting Punkbuster B to start automatically and restart when a failure occurs has helped occasionally, but it seems to revert to its original state every few maps. I can't be bothered reinstalling Punkbuster and manually starting it every time I want to play, does anyone know of a possible solution?
I have run PR on my Vista OS for three years without any issues - so this seems to be linked to PR 909. I've played PR since version 3 or so, but I'll be moving on if I can't find a fix for this in the next few weeks.

System info:



# RAM DDR3 (MB): 4096
# Processor: Core 2 Duo P8400
# Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
# Video memory (MB): 512
